Make Fox hosts admit, apologize


Re “Rupert Murdoch’s been here before,” March 4

An appropriat­e resolution to Dominion Voting Systems’ $1.6-billion defamation lawsuit against Fox News would be to require

Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Maria Bartiromo, Lou Dobbs and Jeanine Pirro to record themselves apologizin­g to the American people for having knowingly lied to them about the 2020 election being rigged.

They should be recorded saying that they knew all along that Joe Biden won the race, but they were only interested in ratings and money and had no interest in telling the truth. Fox News should be required to play the recordings frequently and at different times of the day for at least two months.

We’ve learned that Fox Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch and his dishonest minions at Fox News were aware they were pulling a fast one on their audience by insisting there was election fraud.

In another article in The Times, we learned that two men pleaded guilty for conspiring to bomb Democratic sites in Sacramento because they were unhappy with the 2020 election results.

One has to wonder that if these men had been successful in their plot, would the Fox News hosts have believed “mission accomplish­ed”?

How awful it is that the only accountabi­lity for Fox News’ conscious and deliberate proliferat­ion of lies about the 2020 election is a defamation suit from a voting machine corporatio­n.

Meanwhile, there is apparently no accountabi­lity for how this massive deceit has directly damaged our democracy, which will be ongoing for the foreseeabl­e future and undoubtedl­y repeated.

Fox News, and all other so-called news networks, should have to pay the price. Dain Olsen Los Angeles
